The Law of Compulsory Land Acquisition Second Edition, by the late Marcus Jacobs QC, is the most comprehensive text on the subject of land resumption in Australia.

This timely new edition considers a range of issues that may arise in a land resumption matter and contains extracts from the eight principal State and Territory Acts as well as Commonwealth legislation.

Modern planning pressures are once again placing compulsory land acquisition matters at the centre of public debate in every State and Territory, as governments grapple with a challenging future for Australian cities and infrastructure.

As work progresses on a wide range of critical projects in our cities and regions, it is an invaluable tool for barristers, solicitors, courts and tribunals, industry, government offices and valuers.

An abundance of legislation content captures the growth of statutory law in the area and extensive legislation extracts are supplemented with in-depth commentary and case law.

With its origins in the highly respected Law of Resumption and Compensation in Australia (1998), the Second Edition of this reworked title has been comprehensively updated by Australia’s leading land resumption author, the late Marcus Jacobs QC, in his final edition of the work.

 The Law of Compulsory Land Acquisition Second Edition is an essential guide for anyone involved in land acquisition matters.
